This page has links to all the publicly available talk slides, videos and posters. The videos are all on the BOSC 2014 YouTube playlist, with thanks to Google for sponsorship.

You can download the full program with abstracts (PDF); however, this wiki page is considered the definitive schedule and was updated with any last minute changes.

There was lots of activity under Twitter - our hashtag was #BOSC2014 and there are Storify Tweet archives for Day One, Day Two and during ISMB.
